Politics not my style…but this is ridiculous…(addendum to my earlier post)

…”What we are envisioning is something limited. It is something proportional. It will degrade Assad’s capabilities.

“At the same time we have a broader strategy that will allow us to upgrade the capabilities of the opposition.”

Speech given by Pres. Obama today about the Syrian problems.

My reaction? Well, for a start, what right does the USA or anyone else outside of the region, have to “upgrade the capabilities of the opposition” or “degrade Assad’s capabilities”?

This is beginning to sound frighteningly like the war-mongering just before the attack on Iraq…..

ME & MY PASSION! ok, you probably looked at the length of this "about me" page and thought, god, what's wrong with this guy!....does he have to start telling us his life story or something!!? well, youve come here now anyways, so why not hear what im like as a person, eh? ive been using film cameras for well over 30 years...my first one being the family yashicamat twin lens! over the years, ive both bought sold and collected film cameras...too many to tell the truth! in fact, ive been buying and selling cameras well before the internet came on the scene, so anything you purchase from me is backed by my self-styled moneyback promise.....if you dont like what youve bought, send it back within 14 days and you get all your money back...no arguments!! WHERE I STAND ON THE DIGITAL REVOLUTION! yes, i do use digital as well, but only as a ready-reckoner...i try and take most shots with my simple 2megapixel digicam....if the shot looks good, i pull out my film camera and shoot! i most defintely do not believe in digital manipulation of photographs....that in my eyes is not photography...its cheating! WHERE I USED TO LIVE, WHERE I AM NOW & WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO DO! i used to live in Ontario, Canada, but moved back to the UK a little while ago (its a long story..!)...but now i'm living in the one place i always wanted to be...Vancouver, BC..the next best thing to paradise on earth! as i work as a freelance writer as well as other things, i often find hat my work takes me to europe for short spells, so i get to travel a lot...not a blessing, as i just hate long flights! im a qualified Quality Assurance guy (you know...ISO 9000, auditing, documentation etc) ....99% of my skill-set is transferable so i can handle any admin or documentation-related roles....see you in BC! otherwise, i specialise in ISO 9000 auditing and documentation. my dream? to have my own thriving camera shop in Vancouver BC, whilst living in the mountains somewhere.....the best of both worlds!

    I think that we had to step in when Hitler used gas chambers, and maybe when you study the chemical warfare going on, it will hit you, this is pretty serious. I agree, wish we could stay out, I heard a coworker say, “Just send a sniper in and kill their leader!” Great and simple idea, if only that would end the killing….I am sure Obama has his cabinet and others pushing him a little towards all of this, since he himself is a pacifist most of the time!
